How to Care for a Golden Cane Palm

Golden Cane Palm Care

The Golden Cane Palm is one of the most popular and attractive palms with golden stems and yellow-green fronds. Also known as the Butterfly Palm, the leaves curve upwards in multiple stems to create a butterfly look. The Golden Cane Palm is very adaptable and can be grown in full sun to part shade or in a bright spot indoors. It will give any corner a touch of natural and tropical detail.

Here’s how to care for your Golden Cane Palm.

Golden Cane Palm Care


The Golden Cane Palm thrives in full sun to part shade. If placing indoors, a bright area with some direct sunlight is ideal.


Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water the soil thoroughly and wait for the water to drain through, then empty any excess water sitting in the saucer. Allow the top 3-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again. Reduce watering in the cooler months.

Tip: the top of the soil may look dry but it can be wet beneath, so before watering your plant, dip your finger into the soil to feel the level of moisture. If it feels soggy, wait for a few days and check again.

Temperature & Humidity

Golden Cane Palm prefers average to warm environments and high humidity. It should be given regular misting, especially during the winter if the humidity is exceptionally dry.

Keep away from drafts of hot and cold air that can harm the plant.


Feed your Golden Cane Palm with a slow-release fertiliser during the growing season.

Remove any dead or yellowing fronds.
